HEALTH UPDATE FOR MY MOM: Please say some prayers for my mom as she is in the hospital in Fort Atkinson with the flu. Sister Chris is also sick. Your prayers are appreciated!
HEALTH UPDATE: Recap of events. Went to ER Friday night with a temp of 102.4. Was admitted to UW Hospital and tested for every type of infection under the sun. Not one test came back positive. I’m just about to go home on Sunday afternoon and they remove the connection from my port and discover an unknown fluid. Infection!!!??? Here is the twist. NO!! It was not an infection. After getting tested in the lab it could not be proven to be infectious. This morning the folks in radiology checked out the port with dye and there are no leaks and looks good. This is great news. No removal of old port. I can keep the one I have The doctors had some term for the fluid but I don’t remember what it was. I was too excited to care! I was to be released!!!
Home sweet home! I can’t tell you how good it feels. Cuddles with my family are just so much sweeter these days. The hot shower and clean jammies weren’t bad either. Tom cleaned the whole house trying to get rid of every germ on every surface. Everything looks great, feels great and is great.
If only my Mom was well. It breaks my heart that I can’t run to her side. I want to hold her hand, rub her head and hold her puke bucket. It’s just too dangerous for me. Now I know how she has been feeling these past weeks. I know she would be by my side day and night if she was physically able. MS has taken it’s toll on her travel and energy. I’m swearing inside right now. While both of us have our own health struggles that are keeping us apart, we could not be closer. She is in my heart and soul. There are many times we call each other 2 seconds after one of us is thinking of the other. It’s a strong bond that illness can never break. I love you Mommy!
Thank you God, friends, family, doctors and nurses. I’m so thankful.
